Sesame, Jaggery Poli/Til Poli/Ellu Holige/Ellu Poli

Sesame jaggery poli is one of the traditional sweet dish many of the South Indians prepare during every bhogi festival. You all know that Pongal, this famous harvest festival calls for 4 days celebration and the first day celebration starts with Bhogi festival, to celebrate this day my grandma makes usually poli, a kind of stuffed sweet flatbread prepared either with channadal filling or else with sesame jaggery filling. One of the delicious and our favourite poli always goes for channadal filled sweet poli though this sesame, jaggery, coconut filling is also our family favourite. Eventhough i make this nutritious flatbread often for neivedhayam or for evening snacks am yet to post it in my space.
